Alexandros

not known, Lakka, Greece
Improve this listing
Ranked #3 of 17 restaurants in Lakka
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Greek
Dining options: Late Night
Description: I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long established, always full and really good value. It is located in a small side street just behind the harbour road, next to Lisa's Place and the Harbour Lights Bar. It is a traditional family run taverna which cooks either fresh for you, from the Souvlaki Grill or from a number of pre-cooked dishes which you can view in the kitchen. The prices are really good too. And because it is always busy it has a good atmosphere - Ok the views aren't as good as the harbour side, but you can eat well here for value and then go for a walk and drink at the harbour later.

This is a typical Greek restaurant situated in a quiet sheltered courtyard and where you will be invited into the kitchen to view the menu which is quite vast. The welcome is warm and the food is excellent, we eat here several times in our 2 week stay.

Alexandros and his wife are wonderful hosts and make you feel really welcome. You'll often get an invite in to the kitchen to see what he's cooking, and everything's very authentic and homely. Alexandros gets my number 1 vote in Lakka because of his demeanour, friendly but never pushy, and he sometimes comes and sits with you with some Grappa... More

Alexandros is situated down one of Lakka's streets, so doesn't really have the wow factor location wise. However, the food is generally very good, and very tasty. Our only grumbles were that the food was served lukewarm, which I know is a characteristic of Greek food, but this could have been hotter, and also we thought the mushroom starter was... More

Alexandro is a bear of a man who greets you with a hug and invites you into his kitchen to show you his selection of dishes for the night. You dine outside and his spit roasts are legendary. He makes a lot of noise but all in fun and his wife is a great waitress. He can be persuaded to... More

Alexandros' is one of my favourite restaurants in Lakka. Alexandros and his wife are unfailingly welcoming and the atmosphere is always good. The food is home cooking at its best, and the rabbit stifado is a delight. Nothing is too much trouble, any combination of meat and veg can be ordered. We are usually favoured with some of Alexandros' grappa... More

We looked into the kitchen to see what was cooking, and took a seat. The taverna soon filled up. The meal was lovely, the owners so friendly, and the local choir turned up for their supper, squeezed into the little square and sang for us as they waited for their meal!! It was a wonderful evening.

A great find, hidden away a bit from the waterfront restaurants in Lakka. Such friendly and warm service, freshly prepared food with real integrity. I enjoyed a really succulent stuffed pork roll and my husband had some gorgeous lamb. The staff are only to happy to make the food how you want it and serve with whatever sides you prefer.... More
